I have been an advocate for addicts and addiction recovery for nearly ten years. As president of the Youth Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Project, I worked to council teenagers through temptation, addiction, and recovery. I believe positive reinforcement, confidence in every person, and finding what motivates each individual is what people need to conquer struggles like addiction. Since my time at PCAV, I have worked to use my writing, theatre, and art to motivate people from five years old on up to remain drug-free. I even created a successful ad campaign called "web of drugs" that was specifically geared toward elementary school age children participating in the DARE program. I now work with recovering adult addicts on their journey through sobriety through the comfort of literature and art.
